We enjoyed our stay at Gail's house. It was great to get a brief description of the area and to know what is around. Place is very clean and big. Beds are very-very comfortable. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and discovered lots of table games available. It was a great stay in a great house located in great area of the city!
Our family friend for whom we rented the suite said that they had a lovely stay. They also enjoyed meeting Gail and I found working with Gail to organize the suites rental was first class. I would highly recommend this rental.
We had a relaxing 3 day weekend in Vancouver and yet managed to go to all the places that we wanted to see. The house's location was primarily the reason that we could do all that. Its pretty close to Capilano bridge and Grouse mountain and Stanley park was just across the Lions Gate bridge (approx. 15 mins, with a bit of stop and go traffic near the bridge). Also, the views from the house is pretty good as it sits on top of the hill with views of the bay and downtown Vancouver across from it.
Gail was a great host. We had a very late night check in and she left the lights on for us with a personal note welcoming us. She also gave us suggestions on what we could do in Stanley Park on a rainy day. Btw, Stanley park was absolutely gorgeous even when it was raining.
As far as the house goes, it was very neat and comfortable. You get to rent the ground floor and the owners live on the top 2 floors (you still get ur privacy as the ground floor has its own entrance in the back. See the door in the kihtcen pic., thats the entrance). We only rented the 2 bedroom (you could get a 3rd bedroom for additional cost , otherwise the 3rd bed rooms will be locked). The house was very neat and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had all the things that we needed to cook with, however, it is a bit dated. Gail mentioned that she was getting a contractor to renovate the kitchen on the day we were leaving. So, I guess that should be taken care of.
Note: there is no thermostat to control the temperature in the ground floor. But you have baseboard heaters in each bedroom if you need more heat. The living room has a fireplace which heats up the place very quickly .
The one minor issue that I had was that the some of the china were not washed properly after the previous rental. We noticed this on the last day and told Gail about it and she was going to follow up with her cleaning staff.
Overall it was a great stay and we would recommend this place.
The hosts were extremely helpful providing maps and information. The accommodations were as described on the website. We loved the West Vancouver area. The view of the water and proximity to Whistler was extremely convenient.
Gail's apartment is comfortable and in a beautiful setting. She and her husband were welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit the area and avoid the hustle and bustle of the city. The apartment is well situated to visit Vancouver and Whistler.
